David Oyelowo will receive The Hollywood Reporter's esteemed "Trailblazer Award" for his contributions to storytelling as an actor, producer, director and writer in both television and film.

The award, whose honorees recently have included Eva Longoria, Cris Abrego, Niecy Nash and America Ferrera, is given to artists and industry leaders whose work consistently uplifts and illuminates stories and characters that have been traditionally marginalized in Hollywood and the global entertainment marketplace.

Recipients of the "Trailblazer Award" also have used their platforms and influence to create opportunities for emerging artists and to support their peers in meaningful, change-effecting ways - all in order to create a more equitable share of opportunities for artists in Hollywood.

Following the award presentation, Oyelowo will sit down with Hollywood Reporter Contributing Editor Stacey Wilson Hunt for a wide-ranging interview about his career, including his recent Golden-Globe nominated turn as the lead in Paramount +'s Lawmen: Bass Reeves, on which he also served as an executive producer alongside Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan.

WAWA Wonder Women Lunch: Reinventing the wheel in times of disruption (12:30pm - 2:00pm)

Sponsored by:

This is an invitation-only event.

The Wonder Women Panel & Luncheon was developed by NATPE Global and WAWA (Worldwide Audiovisual Women's Association). This exclusive event will bring together a panel with the finalists for the 2023 WAWA Woman of the Year Award for an inspiring afternoon of networking, a great meal, and an engaging conversation. This is an invitation-only event.

The maxim “change is the only constant” is perhaps nowhere more true than in the global entertainment industry, which at its core is characterized by disruption and transformation. At an exclusive WAWA gathering at NATPE Miami in 2020, Cynthia Hudson declared that the industry was experiencing a period of unprecedented change, comparing the moment with the transition from horse-drawn carriage to automobile. Inspired, the group concluded that it was the perfect time to embrace creativity and innovation in order to move forward. No one could have anticipated that the world would come to a standstill just a month later.

Now, four years on, Hudson returns along with the WAWA Woman of the Year 2023 nominees to assess the transformative journey since her forward-looking NATPE 2020 speech. Examining the industry shifts, business models, and adaptation over the past four years, this panel explores the unprecedented change we faced and the reality that unfolded. How much have we changed? What is not working anymore?
